White House talks COVID origins

Biden admin says no consensus over origins of the pandemic despite two government agencies saying it likely leaked from the Wuhan lab

The U.S. Department of Energy has joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation in their assessment that COVID-19 likely leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.

This is the latest of several collapses in the COVID-policy that locked-down, masked-up and mandated the United States—and the world—for over two years.

During the White House press briefing John Kirby, the National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications said there is not an intelligence community consensus on how exactly COVID was started.

“There is not a consensus right now in the U.S. government about exactly how Covid started,” Kirby said during the briefing.

“We’re just not there yet,” he said.

“If we have something that is ready to be briefed to the American people and the Congress, we will do that.”

Back in 2020, former President Donald Trump said he had a high degree of confidence that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the origin of the virus.

When asked what gives him a high degree of confidence, Trump said, “I can’t tell you that. I’m not allowed to tell you that.”

Following the revelation, Republicans are pushing for the release of evidence to the public.

“Obviously millions of deaths, huge economic impacts, and it would once again show that the Chinese Communist Party is not only a menace, but the nature of these regimes is to lie to the world and we need to make that clear to people,” said Senator Dan Sullivan.

With the Department of Energy in agreement with the FBI that the origins of COVID-19 likely originated from the Wuhan lab – China’s government rejected the assessment and accused the agency of engaging in a political smear.
